WHEN DOING OIL CHANGES ON ANY DUCATI WITH THE SPIN-ON OIL FILTER
Please ensure you properly torque your spin-on filter to prevent oil leaks! If you do not have a Ducati-specific oil filter socket wrench adapter, you NEED one!
FYI - Factory torque specification for most recent Ducati models is 12nm on the Oil Filter and 20nm on the oil drain plug. Especially on the oil filter, this is MUCH lower than the seat-of-the-pants approach usually produces, way more people OVER-torque their oil filter than under-torque it. OVER-torquing the oil filter will crush the o-ring and may lead to it not sealing properly with a slow drip-drip of oil coming out on your garage floor.
